FRENCHTOWN TOWNSHIP, MI (AP) -

Authorities say a fight at a home in southeastern Michigan ended with a man fatally shooting his brother-in-law before killing himself.

The Monroe County sheriff's department says it responded Wednesday night after the homeowner found the men unconscious on the basement floor of the home in Frenchtown Township.

Investigators found that a 61-year-old man who also lived in the home shot his 58-year-old brother-in-law before shooting himself.

Names of those involved weren't immediately released. Autopsies are planned.

The department says it's unclear what prompted the fight.
